New FOX Prank Series “My Parents Are Gonna Love You” Is “Punk’d” Meets “Obnoxious Fiance”
The next reality show headed to FOX is a little bit Punk’d, a little bit My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance.
Did you love watching Ashton Kutcher pull fast ones on some of entertainment’s biggest names on the now-defunct MTV series Punk’d? Were you a fan of My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance, the FOX reality show where a girl pretended to marry a horrible slob in order to win cash — crushing her entire family in the process?
If so, you’ll be head over heels with My Parents Are Gonna Love You. In the show, participants will tell their folks about a wonderful new significant other who turns out to be an utterly obnoxious celebrity.
Kanye West, anyone?
The longer the “couple” can pull off the ruse, the more money they win for the parents, The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday.
“It’s big, noisy, fun and harmless,” says Jean Michel Michenaud, who executive produced series like Joe Millionaire, Temptation Island, and Obnoxious Fiance.
